ELLE ET MOI
(She and I)
2008 | 6 min | Fiction, Poetic | Canada | French with English subtitles
This short fiction film tells the story of a tumultuous, pervasive and devastating homosexual relationship. When one commits suicide, the other is left with the questioning, the shame, the nightmare. Fear of the call of the void, fear of the world, fear of doing the same fatal act. A palpable distress, a shattering inner monologue. This poetic work was filmed among the Atikamekws, in the community of Manawan.
Ciné Fierté is a project conducted around LGBTQ+ themed French-language cinema.
Ciné Fierté from, December 2020 to March 202,1 and its partners, Cinéfranco, FrancoQueer and Inside Out, warmly thank the Ministry of Francophone Affairs and the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture for their generous financial support.
